Past Events
The need to engage more intelligently in real-time during each transaction or interaction, whether it's to add personalization and recommend products or to help improve the overall customer experience across multiple channels, is driving the need for new infrastructure with much lower latency and much higher scalability. The solution that many companies have adopted is to move all the transactional and analytic data, and to collocate computing together in memory using In-Memory Computing technologies.
Nikita Ivanov will take part in panel "Blocking + ICO: transforming reality". Speakers including special guest John Artman, TechCrunch, will discuss:
April 14 in St. Petersburg, the largest international Data Science community ODS will hold the first Unconference, combined with Failconf.

GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri will be one of the featured speakers at the London In-Memory Computing Meetup on April 10. His talk will detail how Kubernetes can orchestrate a distributed database like Apache Ignite. The title of his presentation is: "Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!" Abstract: Distributed databases can make so many things easier for a developer, but not always for DevOps. Kubernetes has come to the rescue with an easy application orchestration!
GridGain technology analyst Akmal Chaudhri will speak at the Apache Spark and Distributed Computing Maryland Meetup on April 5. The title of his talk: "Apache Spark and Apache Ignite: make streaming analytics real with in-memory computing." In his talk, Akmal will drill down into several examples using Apache Spark and Apache Ignite. Learn how Apache Spark is integrated with Apache Ignite through standard Spark APIs, and how Spark benefits from processing data in-memory in Apache Ignite. Specifically this session will show:
GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri, PhD., will be the featured speaker at the NOVA Data Science Meetup on April 4 in Dulles, VA. This event is free but an RSVP is required.  In this presentation, Akmal will look at some of the main components of Apache Ignite, such as the Compute Grid, Data Grid and the Machine Learning Grid. Through examples, attendees will learn how Apache Ignite can be used for data analysis.

  At the first meetup in Petersburg we offer hardcore for those who are interested in the architecture of Apache Ignite. Let's talk about how to evaluate and plan resources for the system, which processes affect cluster performance, and how to speed up data access. And, of course, we will answer all questions about Apache Ignite.
The 10x growth of transaction volumes, 50x growth in data volumes and drive for real-time visibility and responsiveness over the last decade have pushed traditional technologies including databases beyond their limits. Your choices are either buy expensive hardware to accelerate the wrong architecture, or do what other companies have started to do and invest in technologies being used for modern hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP).
